50 Cent shares his pain in the video for “They Burn Me,” which he released from the vault on Christmas Day. In the deep clip, a burned 50—who had his body and face disfigured for the part—lays in the hospital as the mother of his child is seen profiting off his misfortune. The storyline was drawn from his real life experience.
“They burned me. I held on to that [for a] long time. It’s personal, but now everyone can see it,” explained the rapper. “I’m over the issues on it. I write better when I’m in pain.”
